Although Yahoo! Messenger chat application allows users to setup the logon to stay invisible even before they are signed-in to the messenger the software also allows users to configure the messenger so that logging on in invisible mode becomes the default configuration. This ensures that users are not required to click on Invisible Mode checkbox every time they need to logon to Yahoo! Messenger. Moreover this configuration saves a couple of minutes (in all) which users would otherwise have spent by clicking on Invisible checkbox before logging. With the help of just a few mouse clicks users can configure Yahoo! Messenger as above and as a user in Windows 7 if you want to do so you are required to follow the steps given below:

  1. Provide appropriate credentials in the interface of Yahoo! Messenger to logon to the chat application.

  2. Click on Messenger menu and then go to Preferences option.

  3. From the left pane on the opened box click on Privacy category.

  4. From the right pane under When I sign into Yahoo! Messenger section check **Always sign in as invisible. (Appear offline to all users.)**checkbox.

  5. Click on Ok button to save the changes that you have made and restart the application to verify the recently configured settings.
